“Excellent couple of hours.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Came in September. Booked well in advance. Seem to remember it was about £12 a head but easily worth it. Strongly recommended. Take the detail and advice on the website very carefully. This is a very u usual place. Probably the only place like this worldwide. It has been caught up in both British European and American history for many centuries. The tour is very well planned and conducted. Everything was clear and interesting. Whatever your age (but they don't allow under14s for safety reasons) it is fascinating. Highly recommended.

“ding dong”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

Excellent tour. My wife and I went during the Jubilee celebrations, and were allowed to go round by ourselves and chat to the workers. Usually it's an organised group tour, so we were lucky to go during the period we went. Either way, a brilliant tour and well worth the £10.00 per person. Big ben, the American Liberty bell, and numerous other bells were cast here. At the end of the tour they have a set of hanging bells that ring all the peals known. Highly reccomended.

“Absolutely brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

We did our visit last week and during the Olympics, so it is a self- guided tour, it was wonderful, everyone is so friendly and stops whatever they are doing to chat to you, show you what they do and answer any questions you have. Highly recommend a visit.
